Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The summer I killed my father, I was ten years old. "So begins this spellbinding feature debut by Kasi Lemmons (Harriet), an evocative journey into the maze of memory steeped in fragrant southern-gothic atmosphere. In 1960s Louisiana, a young girl (Friday Night Lights' Jurnee Smollett) sees her well-to-do family unravel in the wake of the infidelities of her charming father (Pulp Fiction's Samuel L. Jackson)-setting in motion a series of deceptions and betrayals that will upend her world and challenge her understanding of reality.

Rooted in Creole history, folklore, and mysticism, Eve's Bayou is a scintillating showcase for a powerhouse ensemble of Black actresses-including Lynn Whitfield (Madea's Family Reunion), Debbi Morgan (Roots), and the legendary Diahann Carroll (Claudine) as a voodoo priestess- as well as a profoundly cathartic exploration of trauma, forgiveness, and the elusive nature of truth.
